Explain the range of meanings attached to citizenship, diversity and the associated terminology To achieve P1, learners must explain a range of definitions and meanings and this could take the form of a glossary booklet. Learners should also attempt to relate these meanings to public services.
P2Discuss the key concepts associated with diversity
For P2,learners could add to the booklet with a range of written and pictorial evidence covering the key concepts of citizenship and diversity as shown in the unit content.
P3Assess the benefits of good citizens to public services and society in respecting equality
To complete the booklet, supporting evidence could be included for P3 that links the ideas of good citizenship to the work of the public services showing the benefits that can exist.
M1Analyse the importance to public services of good citizens respecting equality and supporting them by respecting the key concepts associated with diversity
D1Evaluate the role of good citizens in supporting public services in dealing with issues of equality and diversity
To achieve M1 and D1, the supporting evidence that is added to the booklet must contain much more detail in order to show analysis and evaluation.
This may be better achieved by considering how and why good citizenship is important to public services when dealing with issues of diversity and equality. Learners should also consider the advantages and disadvantages of good citizens and the implications of them not playing that role, and give their personal view.
